Mail Merge

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This made so simple what I was trying to do with a complex awk-and-shell script! Just organize the data into a CSV, insert headers, and create your email. The only thing I wish I could figure out is how to embed line breaks in CSV or have TB or MM convert something else to line breaks. But I just split the values into separate fields and added them one by one and it did the job. Now I can quickly gen some data and then fire off emails to appointments. Thanks for this great well done add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.0). 

Tools > Options… for Linux

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Many moons ago, a man named jwz wrote the Unix version of Netscape Navigator. For unknown reasons, he, in his infinite wisdom, decided that Preferences should go under Edit.

Despite almost two decades, a corporate buyout, an open sourcing, 15 major versions, the triumph of Linux over Unix, and most importantly, thousands of add-ons, all of which place their configuration settings under the Tools menu...

the Preferences menu item has stayed in the place jwz prepared for it.

Today, that curse is lifted!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1-signed.1-signed). 

googlebar

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Has barely a third what GTB had. Half the existing Google search types aren't even there. But also, no sharing buttons, no Translate button.

If you just want an easy way to get to different Google search types you would be better off with the Add To Search Bar addon. Or right-click and do Add A Keyword For This Search and then you can e.g. "google stuff" or "gmaps address" etc from the location bar.

Show Address

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This is really quite pointless since Thunderbird already has these columns available to add to the display.

Display mailing list header

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It's not useful to display these links in the expanded headers, when the urls are already viewable in the expanded headers, and in most cases, in the message footer. Why can't they be in the condensed header view?
